330ml Bottle
Appearance - Deep red body, choppy lacing
Aroma - Grapes, wood, leather, vanilla, sour candy
Taste - Burgundy, vinous, sour cherries, tart

This was an interesting find, and it really did taste like Burgundy with some nice sour attributes. The tart was short-lived and finished nice and dry with hints of oak.

MotherBrother (775) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ BBF 12. Pour murky brown, with a small head. Aroma of (coffee(?)), sour cherries, slight funk, slight brett. Taste is quite sour, with some faint sweet notes. Average body, with a slight fizzy carb. This is a little weird, but grew on me during the glass.

abemorsten (2987) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
From tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. ABV is 10% according to my notes from the beer menu at the booth. Body is dark like coca cola with a creamy tan colored rim. Dried fruits, raisins and wooden notes like a fruity liqueur on the nose. In the mouth it’s fruity, acidic and citrusy. Medium bodied and flat and a mouth feel of grapefruit juice. Short end.

zizzybalubba (1537) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
330 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Dark brown pour with a frothy beige head. The aroma really showcases the oak and red wine with only a hint of sourness. By the time I have typed this far the head has quickly disappeared. Surprisingly tart taste with an undercurrent of chocolate that helps to cut the sour bite. The marriage of red wine, oak, cocoa, raspberry, just a touch of coffee, and the slight warmth from the alcohol all blend together beautifully. An exceptional sour ale.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Light tart malty flavor with a lingering finish.
